Here's a little ...

I dont know what to call it .. but came across it in my copy of Wren & Martin's .. I estimate it to have been written in early 2006 ..

"Three years have passed and I've written nothing but fiction. Life just seems to have been stalled in that field sometimes, only to be caught back by reality. I want to write non-fiction but don't know where to start. There are so many things to tell; So many people to talk about; the many relationships made, broken; the endless chain of events - Yet so less words to express - success, grief, disbelief, unaccepted failure, surprise, despair, reflection, delusion, heartbreak (not exactly) and what not ?
Pivoted, I don't even know what to do to set things right. Things aren't so messed up as they appear to be.
The television, i love it dearly, yet long to hate it. I watch it; yet am not addicted to it; like the tinge of lemon remaining on the tongue - what do i mean ?
I quite don't know what relations am building. Exempt love. the girls at my school, the teachers, OMG !! I've always been the object of curiosity, so it isn't so strange when teachers stare at me, suspect etc me and girls like, hate, envy and admire me. But sometimes, it's too much to take, but as it sinks in, i begin to enjoy what not all get to enjoy. I don't know if i'm humorous but i'm talented; It's eccentric for me, there has not been a day when I was one of the crowd, i want to experience getting lost in a mob; but still don't want to, who wants to let go of attention ?
Delusion is the new dimension; My friend sharing my interests has begun back-biting; dreadful, yet i like her dearly. I let go of all things easily, but to forget it all is difficult. It's so mysterious and yet alluring and musical. My, my heart gets heavier as i write this, as if air were lighter than feelings. the problem is, I can't feel these at all times, some kind of amnesia"

I do not know how / where i wrote it ..

Weather Cock

A recent post in a friend's blog inspired me to do this ..

I may have possibly been the only kid to never have said, " I wanna become A Doctor !! "
Dont know why but medicine never struck like a career made for me .. lol .. But i had quite other fancies ..

When i was 12, i wanted to do genetic engineering.
When i was 13, i wanted to become a psychologist, cos i met a really beautiful psychologist then .. (didnt realise i was not beautiful) ..
When i was 14, i wanted to do aeronautics.
When i was 15, i decided i wanted to get into computers and then managemnet
When i was 16, i was bent on getting into iit and getting into an iim and working my ass of in bengaluru .. for IBM may be
When i was 17 .. ahem .. that is NOW .. i want to get out of India as soon as possible .. and get my mba from Wharton ..

There you go ..

Beginning of the End

Some things i have learnt in the past few days:

>> If things are already going bad for you, people who can better your status will actually reduce you to further hopelessness

>> Yet again, life is a game of cards, once dealt, you need to play the best game out of them

>> Luck is something India is very full of

>> If you are a girl, India is not the best place to be born in

>> Love by itself, may not be blind. But people do become blind.

>> Dreams are supposed to only motivate you, not consume you. Yes, this is a consolation because i cannot live them.

>> Even when you are feeling worse than anybody, even when the bullet has caught you right in your gut, still you need to manage others feigning stability.

Yes, this has been a very erratic and a very emotional post. I let it pass.

Fourth rate comedy

Ya, I'm gonna intro you to fourth rate comedy.

# My 10 year old sister wants to know why one has to get married to have kids.

# Why don't dogs need to get married to have puppies.
(She has a point you know)

# I'm entering the bath. Karthik makes a move to his bag near the bath.
I say, "Hey it's ok, I ll go alone."

# My cousin asks the shop-guy for toilet paper. He says, "Toilet paper i don't have. I can give sand paper."

# A guy happened to look at my pictures. He says, "Some of them were scary."

# For those who have seen the recent reliance mobile Ads, the signal bars, at the end of the Ad go from a slanting array to a straight one. So, if you just discovered you're straight, reliance offers you its "Digital Sound Clarity".

# I shell out 16k for a new digicam. My dad asks where it had been manufactured. I wrongly blurt out 'China'. My sis : "Even my toys are 'Made in China' .. You paid SIXTEEN THOUSAND Rupees for a 'made in china' camera ?"

# ,

Ok, enough.
